Subject: Re: [dita] Need Clarification on Implications of Different List MarkupPatterns

Hi, Gershon:

Would it make sense for core DITA 1.2 to include a simplifying constraint module (for instance, limiting nesting for some blocks) and to provide some parallel shells (conceptSimple, taskSimple, etc) that apply those constraints?

That might meet the concern you identify below and illustrate constraints.

Hoping that's interesting,

Erik Hennum
